Easy Spring Sewing Projects

Here are a few last minute easy spring sewing projects my crafty 13 year old daughter has her sights set on. With Easter just 2 days away, easy and quick is the name of the game.
She can taunt her Peep lovin’ brothers (and me) and leave their mouths watering with these inedible imitations. I somehow want to add sparkles to these guys, maybe a little glue and appropriately colored glitter would do the job? Here they are- our favorite easy spring sewing projects- great for kids:

Peeps plushies:

Sewn Carrots:

M has already dug into my fabric scraps and managed to sew up a few of these carrots this week using this tutorial from Claire’s Craft Room. She even found some of the exact same orange polka dot fabric in my extensive collection of scraps.

AND… I really want to make a Peep garland, seriously, with my obsessions with garlands (one on every window) and Peeps (even though they aren’t chocolate) why haven’t I made one already?

      Can’t stop thinking about them, squishing their marshmallowy little bodies and eating them!

    I really want to copy that peeps garland. I am not much of an Easter decorator, but that is really funny.
